Gold Rushed – Uncovered

The owners of Time Lapse Escape Rooms have brought their love of Dawson City Yukon to life in their new room Gold Rushed !

Having all traveled to Dawson City a number of years ago, they were amazed at the effect the lure of wealth had on people during the Klondike Gold Rush. The hardship that adventurers endured just to get there and then the back breaking work to eke out a few flakes of gold.

In the land of the midnight sun, where the sunset is at 3am and sunrise at 5 am during the warm summer months, meant plenty of time for prospectors to work their claims. The opposite effect in the long cold winter months with barely any daylight hours at all meant great hardship for those who could not afford to return home.

The setting of Gold Rushed is in the Gold Dust Lodge, an accurate recreation of a remote watering hole (not the real name), where prospectors spent many of their darkest hours. You will see the infamous local drink, the sour toe cocktail, that actually contains a real human toe from those who lost them due to frostbite. A tradition that continues to this day.

Come take a step back in time and travel to the remote Canadian north to experience life in the Klondike Gold Rush era. Fun Fact – Dawson City Yukon was the largest Canadian city west of Winnipeg during the Klondike Gold Rush.

The few that became extremely wealthy, had to constantly protect their findings from ruthless claim jumpers.  Your goal in this room is to secure your group’s large golden nugget before the claim jumpers find it and escape to freedom. Your partner Ruby, who owns the Gold Dust Lodge, has been killed trying to safeguard the nugget. She has hidden the nugget somewhere in her lodge and has given you clues to find it and escape.

Life In The Warlock’s Home

  • Life in the underworld has been very difficult for Alderon. In order to try and break his curse he has had to venture to the surface in search of the missing piece to the magical amulet.

Many of his fellow warlocks have perished by the intense light from the surface. Fortunately for Alderon he has discovered a way to temporarily survive the burning light. By consuming human flesh just before dawn he has managed to barely survive.

A few close calls have left him terribly disfigured as the bright light has scorched his fragile flesh. His hideous looks are just a part of the terrible curse that has been cast upon him.

He is really looking forward to inviting you to his home. This way he will no longer have to venture to the surface and risk further trama. ” Humans are wonderful creations and I want to help the special ones who will release me from my curse “.

Will you be one of the lucky ones that Alderon rewards with unimaginable wealth ? Or will you become just another of his many victims lost in the underworld  ?

Book today to determine your fate. If you dare !!!!

The Warlock is Awakening

Alderon is becoming very excited to welcome you to his home in the underworld. He needs you to help him break his curse. But do you have the courage to help him out ?

His offer of unlimited wealth is hard to resist. But is it enough to get you to venture into his world of the unknown ?

“Humans are weak and gullible ! They will believe anything you say if they think they will benefit !” These are Alderon’s words.

Alderon is a very intelligent and evil immortal. One of the last to survive the curse, he is very resourceful and will do absolutely anything to get what he wants.

Work is progressing well on this very unique adventure. The creative team at Time Lapse are promising you something you have never seen before in an Escape Room experience.

Trapped In Time – In A Whole Other Way

On Saturday March 11, 2017 history took place in the Trapped In Time escape room.

Arnold Magnayon asked Time Lapse if we could provide the environment for his marriage proposal to the love of his life, Jessica Raymundo. We said yes, we would love to help out.

After weeks of careful planning, the day finally arrived. Jessica and her group entered the Trapped In Time room and the game started. Shortly afterwards Arnold arrived and the staff quietly made the changes for the special ending.

The tension was mounting as Jessica and her group solved puzzle after puzzle. Arnold was pacing as the group got closer and closer to escaping the room. Then came the time for him to take his place.

As she said YES to his proposal the building burst with excitement and cheers. With the added special lighting and a rose petal walkway it was indeed an awesome sight.

It was truly a night to remember for Arnold and Jessica. Also a night to remember for the owners and staff of Time Lapse Escape Rooms. There is no greater compliment on your creation than to be asked to host such a memorable occasion.

On behalf of the owners and staff of Time Lapse Escape Rooms I would like to wish Arnold and Jessica all the best for a long and happy life together.

At Time Lapse Escape Rooms we strive to make everyone’s visit here a time to remember.

Time Lapse At Winterfest 2017

Time Lapse Escape Rooms built a 15 minute pop up room for AI-KON’s Winterfest 2017.

Lineups were long at Winterfest

Based on the Animee “Attack on Titan” you were locked in a room of an old house where soldiers were fighting off a group of Titans approaching the building. The room was titled ” Titans Approach “. You had a mere 15 minutes to unlock a heavily secured door to a secret passage where you could escape. Failing meant a certain unpleasent death at the hands of the monstrous Titans.

Inside Titans Approach

The room was very well received by most participants. It is estimated that over 300 players enjoyed the adventure during the long one day event. The room had a 40% success rate with the record time being 5:03 left on the clock. Congratulations to all that survived.

Game Master Raymond

The staff and owners of Time Lapse had a blast welcoming all that attended their room. Many were newcomers to escape rooms and were excited to give it a try for the very first time.

You always know that when screams and cheers come from the room that it is a hit. Being the very first pop up room for Time Lapse it presented a great challenge but well worth the effort when you hear players having so much fun.

Titans Approach may never be seen again, but I have a feeling we have not seen the end of the Time Lapse pop up rooms. Where will they show up next ? No one knows for sure. Time Lapse is always full of creative surprises.

 

The Warlocks Curse Update

Work is progressing well on our newest room, The Warlocks Curse – Evil Unleashed. It is scheduled to be ready for you to experience this coming spring.

This will be Time Lapse Escape Rooms scariest experience – if you desire. With this room there will be optional scare levels when booking, so don’t worry if you are faint of heart. We will adjust the level of scares for what your group wants. We do not want anyone to miss out on experiencing this awesome creation.

Winnipeg Escape Room - The Warlock's Curse

Scents will also be used as an immersive element similar to our other rooms. This will be optional when you book as well. What does the deep dark underworld of Alderon smell like ? You will have to experience it for yourself to find out.

Your Game Masters will become human slaves of Alderon for this adventure. They will lead you down into the deep dark underworld of Alderon where you will start your own adventure. Yes, it will be up to you to start your adventure.

Stay tuned for more deep dark details of the Warlocks Curse !!!
